There are established lawful routes of supply that are employed for the import of all controlled drugs. As THC is a controlled substance, there is currently an established system in the UK which allows for the lawful importation of THC in CBPM products, through consistent and authorised processes, which deters the need for patients to travel abroad to obtain such products.
